AUSTIN, TX — Hawaiian Airlines has announced new, nonstop flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL).

The service will begin in April 2021.

“We are delighted to bring our superior value proposition to travelers visiting Hawai‘i from Austin,” said Peter Ingram, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “2021 is going to be a special time to experience Hawai‘i, and we can’t wait to welcome onboard our Austin guests and introduce them to our islands.”

According to a press release, flights will operate twice a week, with the Honolulu to Austin flight arriving Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:10 p.m. and departing Austin at 10:10 a.m. the following morning. The flight arrives in Honolulu at 1:30 p.m.

The flights will be on Hawaiian's 278-seat Airbus A330 aircraft. Guests will also have access to "island-inspired complimentary meals."

“We are excited to have met this long-held goal of connecting Austinites to beautiful Hawaii, for both business and pleasure,” said Gina Fiandaca, Assistant City Manager over the SD23 Mobility Outcome. “This significant milestone helps us advance our goal of achieving our Strategic Direction 2023 outcomes that will benefit Austin residents and support our economy for years to come.”

AUS says the new route will be the first nonstop air service to Hawaii for Central Texas travelers and the first Pacific route from AUS. This is Hawaiian Airlines’ first connection into Texas.

“Austin-Bergstrom International Airport remains committed to providing the best service to our passengers despite a year with unprecedented impacts on the airline and airport industries,” said Jacqueline Yaft, Chief Executive Officer. “We know that many Central Texans will be eager to travel and we are excited to offer an easy and convenient way to explore a new destination.”
